Halloween - History of Its Hidden/Secret Origins (Traditions of North America and the Western World Book 2)
Every October 31, millions of people - young and old alike - dress up like witches, demons, ghosts, and assorted other “evil” characters to celebrate what has become one of America’s biggest retail holidays – Halloween! Where did the tradition of the Halloween celebration originate? Halloween comes to us from a long line of tradition which goes back thousands of years. While this celebration was not always called “Halloween,” it was known by a variety of names in a variety of countries over thousands of years. While it is true that the Irish brought the celebration of this festival to America in the 1840’s, they did not originate the festival. Hundreds of years before the Irish celebrated their festival, the Druids (priests of the Celtic people) held a festival to celebrate their new year at the end of summer as the sun was dying. The Druid festival was called Samhain and it was held to honor their many gods – their sun god in particular. The Druids were the first “trick or treaters,” for they roamed the countryside going from castle to castle demanding a “treat” of human victims for their festival sacrifices. If no “treat” was given to these pagan marauders, they would play a “trick” on the castle inhabitants. Before the night was ov...
The Ancient Celtic Festivals: and How We Celebrate Them Today
Travel 2,500 years back in time to find out where many of our modern holiday traditions originated. • Charming full-color ink and watercolor illustrations throughout. • This valuable resource for teachers and parents uses hands-on activities, natural science facts, and observations to explore the concepts of measuring time, making calendars, and marking seasonal celebrations. • Shows how our popular holiday traditions are rooted in nature, beginning as the seasonal festivals of an ancient society. Children love holiday celebrations but most don't know why they wear masks on Halloween or watch for the groundhog on February 2. Now they can discover that many of our modern traditions started with the festivals of the ancient Celts. The Celts were farming people, so their festivals marked the important events of the agricultural year. Imbolc, in very early spring, celebrated the birth of new lambs, while Samhain, in late fall, celebrated the end of the growing season and the beginning of winter. If we look at our modern calendar, we'll find Groundhog Day falling where Imbolc did, Halloween where the Celts celebrated Samhain, and a host of other holiday correspondences. That's because descendants of the Celts were among the first Europeans to settle in the New World, bringing th...

JACK An Ancient Celtic Tradition Version 2.0: The Jack O' Lantern Origins Story
An exciting scary story about how the jack o'lantern came to be... and the interesting character behind it! Misunderstood children often survive bullying to become heroes who watch after us all!The story of JACK describes the Celtic personality and gives comfort to people from a matriarchal tradition as they live within a patriarchal-style culture that has come to dominate and conquer the earth in the recent few millennia. The rogue troublemaker, seemingly without discipline or law has a tough, windy, winding road in a male-dominated society. JACK is forever getting into trouble, but is a good hearted and gentle soul, and more often than not- truly saves the day. JACK has become the archetype for the everyperson hero in the stories of American film and literature, and is evident in the Celtic traditions of European, British, and American peoples.The Story of JACK comes from a harsher time, when consequences were severe for children out at night. Hungry animals hunting in the central square, starving handicapped people, diseased people, and all manner of the disenfranchised and uncared-for individuals threatened a small town lacking the resources to help those in need: all this presented a clear and present danger to any children out after dark. All holiday traditions are adaptati...
JACK: An Ancient Celtic Tradition: How the Jack O'lantern came to be
The Jack O' Lantern comes from ancient Ireland and the Celtic Isles! In the middle ages, each village would have a night watchman, or town crier. The Night Watchman scared kids so they would stay indoors and out of trouble. He became known as Jack in the stories, the turnip changed into a pumpkin over time, and it was all added into the Halloween celebrations! JACK comforts the troubled and troublemakers in this delightful revisiting of a classic theme about overcoming hardships and facing fears -- click the play button at the top left of each page to have Andy Taylor, the voice of the US Open read to you.
